Bermagui Walkers along bike trail near Nutleys Creek Road Thursday 13 June, 9 Dalmeny Narooma Bushwalkers met at Bermagui for a bush walk between Nutleys Creek Road and Bermagui River. Enjoying the bike trails leading them up to Yellow Hill beside Nutleys Creek mostly lined with Casarina's, they stopped at the top with views over the valley with Gulaga in the background with black cloud over her. In this spot the walkers enjoyed morning tea, after which they headed down a dirt track to the Bermagui River where campers were enjoying the quiet of the countryside. These campers showed them how to catch a nipper, a few of the walkers had never seen one before, used as bait for fishing.
Saying goodbye, walkers strolled along the foreshore of the river, sun popped out, jumpers were taken off, all enjoyed the reflections in the water, winding their way along an old trail, shaped like a whales tail, then it was time to walk back up the hill towards Nutleys Creek Road. At the top a huge log was found to sit on where lunch was enjoyed. Taking more bike trails beside the road it was all downhill back to the cars where Gail Drury the walk leader was thanked for this 11km walk with many highlights. Kianga Gold Saturday 15 June, a lovely sunny day greeted the 12 walkers at Kianga for an easy 7km walk around the area. Led by Jan Thomas and Maggie Finch they headed North along the cycle walk path to Kianga Reef headland, then took an easement between the houses and Kianga Lake, up behind the houses the walkers found old diggings from the gold mining days, unfortunately no gold was lying around. They then made their way to Dawn Parade, down back to Carters for morning tea. Jan and Maggie then led the walkers up to a secret spot overlooking Wagonga Headland, magic views on a clear day.
The walk ended at Kianga Beach watching a whale breaching while having a leisurely lunch where Jan and Maggie were thanked for this easy local walk. All information about the Dalmeny Narooma Bushwalkers are on our web site www.dalmenynaroomabushwalkers.info
